 Morning Devotional (D.L. Moody) October 2004


[b]October 5[/b]
[i]Happy is the man whom God correcteth. - Job 5:17[/i]

Happy, because the correction is designed to bring him inot paths of blessedness and peace. Happy, because there is no unnecessary severity in it. Happy, because the chastisement is not so much against us as against our most cruel enemies-our sins. Happy, because we have abundant words of consolation. Happy, because whom the Lord loves He chastens. Happy, because our light affliction is but for a moment. - George Bowen

[i]They took knowledge of them, that they had been with Jesus. - Acts 4:13[/i]

A Christian should be a striking likeness of Jesus Christ. You have read lives of Christ, beautifully and eloquently written, but the best life of Christ is His living biography, written out in the words and actions of His people. IF we were what we profess to be, and what we should be, we would be picturs of Christ; yes, such striking likeness of Him that the world would not have to hold us up and say, "Well, it seems somewhat a likeness," but they would, when they once beheld us, exclaim, "He has been with Jesus; he has been taught of Him; he is like Him; he has caught the very idea of the holy Man of Nazareth, and he works it out in his life and every day actions." - Spurgeon

[i]When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceeding great joy. - Matthew 2:10[/i]

We who look for Jesus ought to be joyful; it is no credit to our Lord whe we look as though we were seeking His grave. The dull looks of Christ's followers have injured Him in the sight of the world. Let us, then, smile as we go, for we have the star if we look upward and out ourselves in the right path. - Thomas Champness

[i]Let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for a helmet, the hope of salvation. - 1 Thessalonians 5:8[/i]

Faith, love, hope-these three form the defensive armor that guards the soul-and these three make self-control possible. Like a diver in his gear who is let down to the bottom of the wild, tumultuous ocean, so a man whose heart is girded by faith and love, and whose head is covered with the helmet of hope, may be dropped down into the wildest sea of temptation and of worldliness, and yet will walk dry and unharmed through the midst of its depths, and breathe air that comes from a world far above the restless currents. Faith will bring you into communication with all the power of God. Love will lead you into a region where all the temptations round you will be touched by Ithuriel's spear, and will show their own foulness. Hope will turn your eyes from looking at the tempting splendor around, and fix them upon the glories that are above. And so the reins will come into your hands in an altogether new manner, and you will be able to be king over your own nature in a fashion that you did not dream of before, if only you will trust in Christ and love Him, fixing your desires on the things above. Then you will be able to govern yourself, when you let Christ govern you. - Alexander MacLaren

[i]I spake unto thee in thy prosperity. - Jeremiah 22:21[/i]

We shade our eyes with the hand to shut out the glare of the strong daylight when we want to see far away. God thus puts, as it were, His hand upon our brows, and tempers the glow of prosperity, that we may take in the wider phases of His goodness. It is a common experience that, looking out from the gloom of some personal affliction, men have seen for the first time beyond the earth plane, and caught glimpses of the Beulah Land. Let us not shrink from the Hand which we know is heavy only with blessing. - Ludlow

[i]Come and dine. - John 21:12[/i]

This morning the voice of the Beloved of our soul is heard giving us His invitation. "Children," He asks, "have you any meat?" We answer, "No, of ourselves we have nothing but hunger and starvation. O God, we cannot feed ourselves!" Then it is that His own sweet voice replies, "Come and dine!" - W. Hay Aitken

[i]O Lord God, thou knowest. -Ezekiel 37:3[/i]

Here is the response of faith, "You know!" What a pillow for the heart to repose upon! "You know!" What few but comprehensive words to sum up and express the heart's difficulities and perplexities and trials. "You know!" What an inexpressibly sweet resting place in the midst of life's tumultuous heavings, in the midst of a scene in which tossings to and fro are hourly history! What an answer they contain for every heart that can find no words to express its big emotions, for a heart whose sorrows are too deep for language to find its way to God! Oh, that they were ever uppermost in the soul, as the response to every difficulty in our path! They are God's answer to everything we cannot fathom, God's answer for our hearts to rest upon and our lips to utter when everyway is hedged up so that we cannot pass. "O Lord God, You know!" Rest here, believer. Lean your soul on these words. Repose calmy on the bosom of your God, and carry them with you into every scene of life. "O Lord God, You know." - F. Whitfield

[i]When I sit in darkness, the Lord shall be a light unto me. - Micah 7:8[/i]

If you are willing to choose the seeming darkness of faith instead of the illumination of reason, wonderful light will break out upon you from the Word of God. - A.J. Gordon

[i]He riseth from supper, and laid aside his garments; and took a towel, and girded himself. AFter that he poureth water into a basin, and began to wash the disciples' feet, and to wipe them with the towel wherewith he was girded. - John 13:4-5[/i]

Acts are common and humiliating because they are ordinarily expressive of the thoughts of men. Let us not accuse the acts that make up our daily lives of meanness, but our ignoble souls that reveal themselves so unworthily through those acts. The same act may successively mount up through every intermediate stage from the depth of unworthiness to a transcendent height of excellence, according to the soul that is manifested by it. One of the glorious ends of our Lord's incarnation was that He might repair us using the details of life, so that we would disdain these as insignificant, but rather disdain ourselves for our inability to make these details interpreters of a noble nature. Oh, let us then look with affectionateness and gratitiude upon the daily details of life seeing the sanctifying imprint of the hand of Jesus upon them all! - George Bowen

[i]Behold a ladder set up on the earth, and the top of it reached to heaven. -Genesis 28:12[/i]

Think of that mystic ladder, which descends from the throne of God to the spot, however lowly, where you may be. It may be a moorland waste, a humble cottage, a ship's cabin, a settler's hut, a bed of pain, but Jesus Christ finds you out and comes just where you are. The one pole of this ladder is the gold of His deity; the other is the silver of His manhood. The rungs are the series of events from the cradle of bethlehem to the right hand of power where He sits. That ladder sways beneath a weight of blessing to you. Oh, that you would send away your burdens of sin, care, and fear by the hands of the ascending angels of prayer and faith, so that you would be able to recieve into your heart the trooping angels of peace, joy, love and glory. -F.B. Meyer
